    Prayers for all the people associated with Virginia Tech today and our country in general. Another tragedy has occurred. No words can express the heartbeak and disbelief of yet another massacre. I'm speechless and numb and so terribly helpless.

    Many of our local students attend VT. Still waiting to hear if all of my former students are safe. A time for continued prayer.

    Lots of prayers today for all involved in this tragedy.

    One of our local students was there during this event. I remember him talking about being excited in going there. He is an office monitor at the high school that I have subbed at recently.

    Slow down today and hug everyone you hold dear to you today.

    Took my son to school today - his first day back since the accident. Our high school students are really in need of a sympathetic ear. With the recent loss of one of our students (suicide) and now this they are having a hard time focusing on their normal daily activities. Hugged a few this morning. Some were sobbing not knowing what the future held for their generation. They so need hugs in a world where that is not appropriate to do so. Something has to change! Fortunately we have a large support system here. Lots of professional help for all our children in the school district.

    I imagine everyone is devastated about this in some way. My prayers go out to you all.

    Yesterday was like some sort of bad dream, culminating in a nightmare. I feel for everyone associated with VT, for the whole Hokie family.

    What a waste. What a horrible waste.

    One of our former students was a victim at VT. His younger brother (a college freshman) is (was?) taking a class from me this semester. I have to go to class and tell his friends at 10 a.m.
